PACIFIC UNIVERSE - Matariki Constellation
This is a stunning small disc pendant representing the Matariki Constellation.
PACIFIC UNIVERSE is hand made from recycled Ebony, premium NZ Paua Shell, Australian Golden Mother of Pearl and Tahitian Black Mother of Pearl. The metal inlay used for the stars and divisions are Copper, Silver and Brass.
The colours of the Golden and Black Mother of Pearl are complementary but quite distinct and represent the moon in the night sky beautifully.
The New Zealand Paua Shell comes from cold water down south. It grows slowly, is very dense and has particularly striking and vibrant colours. Brings up memories of diving into a cold, crisp, crystal blue ocean.
The copper, silver and brass are carefully placed to reflect the Matariki Constellation - the Pleiades Star Cluster which first rises in late June, early July and marks the beginning of the New Year in the Māori lunar calendar. This is a beautiful piece and will become a lifelong companion.
It is provided with a fixed length, hand plaited cord in black with Paua Shell Toggle.
If you like the look of PACIFIC UNIVERSE, take a short moment to watch the brief video we have made of it slowly revolving. This might tempt you though, so watch with care!
